Excellent! Absolutely exceeded all expectations. We contacted MJ Carlson after purchasing a new home with an extremely uneven, sloped yard with no outdoor space. Following our initial consult, he came up with suggestions we would not have even imagined to resolve usage, safety and drainage issues. Mike recommended a reasonably priced patio stone and we selected colors. He came up with a gorgeous pattern and installation was executed flawlessly. His instinct for aesthetics is incredible. Mike checked in with us on decision making along the entire process- by the end of the job we knew we could just answer "whatever you recommend!".

The initial visit to take a look at our driveway was rescheduled several times. After they did come, we did not receive an estimate from them for a week or two. I called to find out what was going on, and was told it had been mailed, but we never received it. They said they would drop it off in our mailbox the next day, but again nothing came. That was the last contact we had. I'm not interested in chasing contractors down just to receive an estimate.
Description of Work
When we bought our house, it had a tandem (single car wide) driveway with 3-4 foot retaining walls on either side. We were forced to park on the street frequently and otherwise juggle our cars to get them in and out of the garage and driveway. We contacted MJ Carlson to give us an estimate to widen the driveway.

They provided high quality. They were professional and always on time. They were creative and looked for ways to save money. I liked their ability to reuse the trees and shrubs on the property, so instead of having to buy new things they were able to move some existing stuff around to save us money and give us more mature plantings.
Description of Work
They put in a new driveway, stone walls, and a bridge down the patio. They also planted trees and put in a new large lawn.

We used Mr. Carlson for several years, the last being the winter of 2011. He was very reliable and came early, as we had contracted. However, the work was sloppy. Even though we had snow markers deliniating our driveway, they were frequently run over and our grass and plantings were run over. We had to replant. Even though we brought this to his attention, it seemed that speed was more important. Also the drive was not plowed thoroughly, with snow piles left, some created by the plow. This was very important because I conduct my business from my home and there are a lot of people who walk to my office from my drive.

The driveway was very hard to plow and it was the winter with record braking snow I have plowed 36 years. the enriches are the only ones I have had a problem with. I still plow there next door to them.

Mr. Carlson arrives promptly, the snow removal was always done before I had to come or go. For the landscaping, Mr Carlson made sure to come when the ground was dry (unlike a prior worker on another home who worked after it rained and damaged the lawn) and used both an excavator and bobcat as required. His work is first rate and I plan to use him for all my lawn work in the future.
Description of Work
Mr. Carlson does my snow removal (not included in amount above) and landscaping. The landscaping involved removing some stumps, moving some trees, and leveling the back yard to create a play area for my sons.

Their prices were very good compared to other service providers in Lexington. Mr. Carlson is very friendly. Unfortunately over the years there have been many missed appointments when he'd said he'd do something and either did not or it took days to weeks to do it. Lots of credible sounding excuses but eventually just too many of them. We always tried to give lots of lead time which didn't always matter in terms of getting something done. It actually lead to us not doing projects because the coordination with the provider became such a hassle.
Description of Work
Cost for two fall clean-ups for a 1/4 acre property with lots of flower beds. We've used this company for 3+ years for lawn care and seasonal clean-ups and snow removal, occasional odd jobs like moving trees. We were an "on-demand" client rather than say every 2 weeks because our grass grew slowly. Cutting grass and cleaning up afterwards cost $35. I don't recall the snow removal costs but it was always reasonable.
